Hunt for the witches in the woods of Pendle

Pendle, Lancashire

Embark on the interactive Pendle Sculpture Trail, and find the witches ceramic plaques in an atmospheric woodland setting.

Art, history and nature come together against the stunning backdrop of Pendle Hill. Inspired by the history of the Pendle Witches of 1612 and the natural world in this wild and beautiful corner of Lancashire, four artists have created a unique and intriguing range of sculptures for you to find.
Explore the peaceful setting of Aitken Wood to find ceramic plaques by Sarah McDade, designed to symbolise the ten people from Pendle who were accused of witchcraft over 400 years ago.  You’ll also find an inspiring range of sculptures, large and small, which are created from wood, steel and stone, including Phlippe Handford’s amazing curving tree sculptures.
